IBM's New Lithium-Air Car Battery Offers 500-Mile Range

IBM seems to be the saviour of all electric vehicles, since it has recently come out with solutions for every major setback they present....

High-Performance Batteries Developed Using a Common Virus

The development of a new hi-tech rechargeable battery has been discussed this week at the 240th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS). The new high-performance batteries are portable and can be woven into fabrics, for both military and civil purposes.

Nickel Found to Control the Performance of Lithium-Ion Batteries

Lithium-ion batteries are well-known for their long lasting lives. However, researchers believe there is still room for discussion. A group of scientists at the Department...

Harvard 3D Printed Microbattery Wins Innovation Award

University of Harvard, or more precisely, scientists from the university's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, were granted with the Academic R&D Award last...
Graphene-based supercapacitor will revolutionize renewable energy and energy storage, says Sunvault Energy

Self-storing Solar Power Possible with Graphene, says Sunvault Energy

Graphene, in concept, has been around since the latter half of the 1800s, but it wasn’t until just over a decade ago that scientists...

Active Dual Functioning Electrolyte Boosts Capacity and Extends Life of Batteries

Scientists and engineers have been trying to improve the capacity and extend the life-span of conventional batteries ever since their initial creation. We often...

New Nano-Materials Mix Boosts Li-Ion Battery Capacity

Carbon nanotubes have been in the focus of many scientists and universities studying battery technologies recently. Now, a group of Rice University researchers found out the novel properties of carbon nanotubes surrounded by metal-oxide arrays for use in lithium ion batteries.

New Special Nozzle Makes Methane Hydrates Easier to Obtain

Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy found out a way to chemically enclose methane in cage-like ice crystals. This technology is much safer than current liquefied natural gas (LNG), which is transported at very low temperatures and high pressures.
Electric vehicle battery technology has taken the next step with a self-heating battery.

Beat Winter with a Self-Heating Battery

Researchers believe they have found the next way to cure winter blues – for electric vehicle battery technology, anyways. A lithium-ion battery that heats on...
